On Thursday, April 13, 2023, a butcher in Warri, Delta State was arrested for allegedly stabbing his wife to death. Reports indicate that the suspect had returned home from Igbudu market, where he works as a butcher and meat seller, and attempted to scoop hot water to bathe. His wife reportedly objected, claiming that he did not provide money for upkeep or to fill the gas at home. The argument escalated, leading to the suspect allegedly stabbing his wife multiple times until she collapsed. He then took her to a private hospital, where she died. The suspect’s daughter reported the incident to the police and he was arrested shortly thereafter.
